Applause for Treasure Island

"My son is not a huge reader and we forgot how long Treasure Island is - he read all 300 pages over the weekend! Maybe it was the pirate eyepatch and bandana we got him to go with the book ; ) Your books really do motivate kids to read!"Jim C., Sarnia, ON
"This story is so much fun. I remember my grandfather reading it to me when I'd spend weekend at his farm as a kid. My husband has never read it, so I'm putting him in the BookByYou version. I know he'll love it as much as I do."Tatiana Z., Salt Lake City, UT
"My mom and stepdad got me this for my birthday, and I liked it so much I'm going to do a book report on it for my class!"Kerr B. (age 11), Jones, AL
